on the budget with jim nestle and jared bernstein. great to see both of you. and look, jim, john just made this point that whether it was the proposal from congressman camp or president obama's budget, everyone is saying it's dead on arrival, you don't need to worry about it. frankly, it does feel as though we're seeing an emerging template for tax reform. in your view what could come out of this in the year or two ahead? >> you're right. if you're looking for a silver lining on a day when generally speaking you've seen the president propose what is a budget that's really not going anywhere, the silver lining is what's happening on tax reform, and it's really going to happen in the congress. the president has pretty much checked himself out of the reform process. i think the new finance chairman in the senate, senator widen, and dave camp as well as the potential of paul ryan coming to the tax committee, i think that gives us a silver lining and some hope when it comes to comprehensive tax reform. and the second item is what secretary hagel did in defense spending looking forward and sayin
just sitting down. how are you? >> good. >> greg ip from the economist. we have john doyle, jim lowell from adviser investments. we have steve liesman, rick santelli. it's a cast of thousands here. steve, i'm going to start with you. give us the hits and runs of janet yellen's testimony. any big changes from what she told the house financial services committee recently? >> none really. >> thanks for joining us, steve. >> that's fine. just a little bit more of the weather. went out of her way to say there's been more weather since i last spoke to the house. made one change in one word that i don't find to be very significant, saying that a significant change in the outlook is what would change the fed from tapering. otherwise, the fed is on track. and the fed is still groping for new language for how to advise the market about when it would think about raising rates because it's near that 6.5% employment threshold. >> she left the door open to tapering the taper, right? i mean, they're not on -- >> if you want to read it that way, bill, you go right ahead. i don't read it that way. i re
. >> nbc chief pentagon correspondent jim mcicklaszewsk is following the crisis. >> u.s. military officials at the pentagon continue to stress there are no viable options, no viable military solutions to this russian/ukrainian crisis. officials continue to stress that they have issued no orders to scramble any military assets, no ships, no planes, no military forces have been put on stand-by. the question is, if you did that, then what would they do? and the big fear is that it could lead to some unintended confrontation with the russian military forces that nobody here wants. instead, they're going to take some small steps. they're talking about suspending or canceling a joint u.s./russian military exercise set for may and cutting off for the time being all military to military consultations and contacts with the russians. you know, the feeling is that the only viable weapons now in the u.s. arsenal are diplomatic and economic sanctions, which the white house has been talking about for some time now. and if there's any piece of good news in any of this, u.s. military says intelligence indi
highlighted that you had sold all your shares of facebook after that $19 billion acquisition of whatsapp. jim cramer was with us this week, and he said he feels like there's too much froth in some of these technology stocks and that's got him worried. are you concerned about that as well? >> well, facebook was a case in point. you know, we sold because we thought at $19 billion, you know, we were discounting just too far in the future and there was no -- nothing said about monetization and when you see that kind of thing, there is a little froth. >> he's looking at netflix and even outside technology, tesla which has been up, you know, an incredible amount in the last -- 650% or whatever it is in the last 14 months. that kind of froth he feels like doesn't take us all the way back to the late '90s but he's becoming a little concerned. are you? >> i'm not that concerned about the market. you know, this is a battleground we're seeing right now, and, frankly, you have a lot of sellers at these levels, and a lot of people are stepping to the sidelines, institutional and retail, because they got t
